Six through eight year old beginning swordsmen engage in an hour-long class that uses the building blocks of competitive fencing to emphasize the importance of working together while also fostering the child’s ability to think individually and critically starting from an early age. The development of hand-eye coordination, general fitness, and body movement begun at the previous level is age appropriately elevated here to fit the advanced abilities of first through third graders.
